The COVID 19 pandemic brought the world to its knees. Sheltering in place, we watched in horror as medical personnel worked around the clock to care for the sick and dying. We were advised to self-quarantine, wash our hands, wear a mask, and practice social distancing. Businesses were shuttered, travel stopped, workers were furloughed, and markets dropped. Yet people continued to die. Amid all this uncertainty, writers and artists from around the world continued to create comics - many commenting directly on how individuals, societies, and governments, employers, and other institutions reacted to the worldwide crisis. COVID Chronicles: A Comics Anthology collects more than forty such short comics in which creators tell stories about working from home, virtual homeschooling, and the fear of grocery shopping. They probe the failures of government leaders and the social safety net. And they dig in to the racial bias and systemic inequities that this pandemic helped bring to light. We see what it's like to get the virus--and to live to tell about it, or to stand by helplessly as a loved-one passes. At times heartbreaking and at others hopeful and humorous, these comics express the anger, anxiety, fear, and bewilderment we feel in the era of COVID-19. Above all, they highlight the power of art and community to help us make sense of a world in crisis, reminding us that we are truly all in this together.
